Over the past decade, we have received hundreds of incredibly moving testimonials given by PHWFF veteran participants, their families, and hospital staff. Reading first-hand about how challenges, heartbreak and adversities were overcome through the help of the PHWFF program is tremendously significant and heartwarming. We are particularly honored to a share a wonderful poem penned by PHWFF Roanoke, VA participant Branden Wells, USMC (ret) that he has dedicated to “the Veterans of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.” It speaks volumes to what we do. All of us at PHWFF would like to thank the Branden for so eloquently crafting these lines and sharing them with us. Our hope in sharing it with you is that it will perhaps expose others yet uninformed to the healing that occurs in our healing waters.
